- Holepunch is a Nebulan "double" Targetmaster partnered with Tracer and the Autobot Scoop in the Generation One continuity family.
Holepunch is a bureaucrat from hell. He compensates for his complete lack of people skills or formal managerial training with the natural gifts of a bossy attitude and inflated sense of his own importance.
As an office manager for a water purification company on Nebulos, Holepunch had only his subordinates to terrorize. When the Decepticons invaded, Holepunch (doubtless encouraged by his co-workers) concluded the Autobots were in need of his special touch.
Holepunch turns into a dual compression cannon capable of shattering steel. As a "double" Targetmaster, Holepunch is able to combine with Tracer to increase the power of his own weapon or boost the power of Tracer's ion blaster.
Holepunch is unable to suppress his managerial instincts. As a result he drains the productivity and damages the morale of any unit to which he's assigned.
